Clearly, Drake was the child who was left behind. If you don’t believe that then his statements in a recent interview with The Jewish Chronicle should change your mind almost instantly. What exactly did he say to prove his ignorance? “I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing.”
Yes, you read that correctly. Drake, the same man who once named Beyonce as one of the best singers of our time, has confirmed that his limited knowledge of music extends beyond the scope of R&B and he knows little about the Hip-Hop industry that he currently dominates.
Read exactly what Drake’s ego said to The Jewish Chronicle below:
“There were people who incorporated melody before me but I would deem myself the first person to successfully rap and sing. Yes, there are aspects of it that are new in the rap world. But it’s not a gimmick. I just sort of exist and people embrace it. I’m one of the few artists who gets to be himself every day. It doesn’t take me six hours to get ready and I don’t have to wake up in the morning and remember to act like this or talk like this.”

So, Drake clearly never heard of Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, Nate Dogg, Left-Eye and Missy Elliott, all of whom enjoyed success on the charts while he was sitting in a wheelchair on ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation’. Furthermore, those named artists didn’t only enjoy major commercial achievements, they could actually sing.
